Binh Thuy Ancient House
The most famous is Duong’s family house (also called Binh Thuy Ancient House or Binh Thuy Orchid Garden) which is a must for visitors to Can Tho.
Located at 26/1A Bui Huu Nghia Street, Binh Thuy District, Can Tho City, it is one of the ancient houses in the city left completely intact.
Covering an area of 8,000 square meters, the house is not only attractive because of its design which combines Vietnamese and French architecture, but also due to its wonderful garden with various flowers and fruits. It hosts a wide range of orchids and a record cactus together with seven rocks symbolizing seven heroes.
Built around the late 19th century or early 20th century, the outside appearance of the house is French in design while the interior is Vietnamese in character. In the front of the brick house is a wide yard made of square bricks and surrounded by flowers and ornamental plants.
The house has a mystique of glamour thanks to the numerous local and foreign film directors who have chosen the house to shoot movies like French flick L’amant directed by J.J Annaud and Vietnamese films Chan Troi Noi Ay, Nhung Neo Duong Phu Sa, Cong tu Bac Lieu and Cay Tre Tram Dot.
